Refreshing vodka strawberry, basil, lemonade cocktail



Lemonade is one of my 'go to' drinks no matter the season and with extra time inside these days, I thought it would be fun to test a new cocktail idea using ingredients already in the house. The refreshing combination of basil, strawberries and lemonade is a real treat and a delicious taste I think you'll really enjoy!


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups lemonade

  • 5 strawberries

  • 3 shots of vodka

  • 5 basil leaves

  • Ice

*Makes 2 - 3 cocktails


DIRECTIONS


1. Cut your strawberries into small cubes, placing into a cocktail shaker filled with crushed ice.


2. Next, chiffonade the basil and put into the cocktail shaker.


3. Pour your vodka and lemonade into the cocktail shaker. Then take a muddler to mash together the ingredients.


4. Shake the cocktail until combined. Pour over short glasses with ice and garnish with fresh basil for a finish. Enjoy!
